Years ago, I spent countless hours watching YouTubers and reading blog posts about events I’d always wanted to attend. Advice, general knowledge, and even some insider tips learned from trial and error were shared with their audience. When I finally ventured out to some of these events, I didn’t feel like a complete noob and I felt so grateful someone had left a trail for me.
I’d like to do that for someone else, using this platform that is continuing to grow.
I want to show people just how many aspects of Japanese culture can be learned through watching anime.
Eventually, further down the line I’d like to create a Patreon. But this will come after more content has been added to the site and I’ve begun all of the series I have in mind to bring to you all.
For now, I will leave this list of events In Asian Spaces hopes to attend. Some of these events I have attended, some I’ve just learned about and some I’ve always dreamt of seeing.
If you would like to, I will also leave a link for Paypal donations that will go towards ticket, transportation, lodging and event associated fees. Those who support the site will receive a special gift unique to the experience.
